Intrepid adventurer Sarah Outen has started her second world record attempt to become the first person to row solo across the North Pacific Ocean.
The 27-year-old, of Oakham, began her 4,500-nautical mile trip from Japan to Canada in her rowing boat, Happy Socks, shortly before 8am UK time (3pm in Japan) on Saturday.
It is the latest leg of her round-the-world trip by kayak, bike and rowing boat.
Yesterday, a message on Sarah's website, from one of her team, said: "Sarah has made great progress in the last 24 hours and has covered 30 miles thanks to the Kuroshio current. Seasickness has been pretty bad but is now easing so all is well."
Yesterday afternoon, the adventurer tweeted: "In the Kuroshio current and whizzing NE. Still struggling to eat but improving."
The journey will see Sarah spending between 150 and 200 days alone out at sea.
She first attempted the row in May, but the challenge was cut short when she hit a typhoon several hundred miles off the coast of Japan.
After days of being battered by 15metre-high waves and winds gusting at more than 80mph, her first boat, Gulliver, sustained irreparable damage and capsized.
The ocean row is set to be the most gruelling part of Sarah's London2London: Via the World expedition. If successful, she will be the first woman to row solo across the North Pacific Ocean, west to east, and to row solo from Japan to Canada.
